Slow down you crazy child, you're so ambitious for a juvenile.

I like love being busy. I like feeling accomplished. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy moments of peace and quiet to myself, but staying busy is good for my sanity :)


-Wake up at 9:45... barely
-Check instagram, with one eye open
-Put another dot on the missionary countdown (Week 34!!!)
- Eat coaches oats with honey and cinnamon along with a glass of water in Hunt's Raiders cup
-Write my sweetheart a love letter and seal it with a kiss
-Organize the missionary scrapbook and get lost in reminiscing over old letters
-Auds comes home, leaves shortly after. My heart starts feeling heavy for her as I realize its her last night with her honey.
-Realize I have to leave for work in 15 minutes... shoot I'm still in my pajamas and have no makeup on
-Apply some mascara, put on stained jamba shirt, spray it with perfume trying to mask the fact that it hasn't been washed in a while ha oops. Whatever, not like I'm trying to impress adamant smoothie consumers anyways.
-Get in car, stop at mailbox, think about Hunt the rest of the drive to work, get cut off 2 times on the 15, almost run a red light because I'm running late, park seriously 5 miles away from the mall, slam my long hairs in the car door, walk like an Olympic racer to my store, get there with 4 minutes to spare!
-Clean, make smoothies, prep juices, listen to lady complain about a hair she found in her smoothie FIVE days ago... really lady?, try to understand the man with strong Indian accent that wants me to make him 32 ounces of carrot juice (okay maybe I understood him the whole time, I just didn't wanna make it).
-Manager asks if he can talk to me... shoot what the flip did I do wrong, was it the 7 cents I was short the other day? Maybe its because I drank 2 smoothies on the job yesterday. No wait, its gotta be because I got sassy with the customer that spilled her entire drink then demanded a new one. He opens his mouth, here it comes! "Hey Aleigh, I wanna offer you a lead position. You'll get a raise and more hours. I think you're ready for this and it would be an awesome thing to put on future applications, let me know by Friday." I stare at him trying to hide my utter disbelief and shock, "Yeah for sure, thanks George!"
-Seany comes in for his last shift and leaves with yet another story to tell on the job. Sweet Emma and I are talking about my ideal marriage and how I want to be a homemaker, she thinks I'm crazy. I'm used to it. Meanwhile mysterious man talks secretively to Sean asking him if Emma and I are interested in being escorted to his shop on the bottom floor, signing some papers, drinking his delicious mystery drink, then scoring $30. HA, I may be 18 and naive but I am not gonna be the next girl on the milk carton.
-It's 5, I'm off but stay another hour to say goodbye to Seanba Kingston aka Sean...
-Go home, remember the smoothie I had, decide to go for a run, get a cramp, come on Aleigh just keep running(in the voice of Dory), Shower, put a dress on, go to the Moore's.
-Joshua gets set apart as a missionary and blessed. I cry because I remember this moment with Hunter like it was yesterday. I watch Audrey give her last hug and feel the same pit I felt almost 8 months ago.
-Go to froyo with Auds Pauds and talk about marriage and things related to our boys becoming men.
-Go home, finish the chalkboard I made while listening to the band perry on pandora.
-Read my scriptures, blog, and lastly meet with my lovebug in my dreams for the 231st night in a row :)
